Half-Square Shuffle: Quick & Creative Quilt Pattern

Quilt Designed & Sewn by Kathryn Wagar Wright
Half-Square Shuffle: Quick & Creative Quilt Pattern

How will your triangle-squares be shuffled? At first glance, Kathryn’s energetic throw quilt looks like a basic layout of triangle-squares - and it is, up to a point.
Inspect it closer, however, and you’ll notice that the color and print placement is not quite as straightforward as it seems; these unexpected adjustments give the design extra vitality. It’s not often that we suggest you ignore our pattern instructions, but in this case, the pattern is a springboard to your own creative expression!
In the magazine you’ll read about Kathryn’s design process and follow her lead for trying a loose, casual approach to color placement to make a version of this simple quilt that’s one-of-a-kind and just your style. Once the easy blocks are sewn, then the fun of arranging them starts!
